The DSMC2 DRAGON-X Camera Kit gives you all the components you need to begin shooting true professional-quality video.



Designed and engineered to meet RED's exacting standards for superior image quality, the DSMC2 DRAGON-X camera can capture high-resolution motion and stills in 5K Full Format at up to 96 frames per second (fps), or 5K 2.4:1 Full Format at up to 120 fps. It also allows you to take advantage of RED's cinema-grade dynamic range and new IPP2 color science in-camera while offering the ability to record in REDCODE RAW (R3D) and Apple ProRes or Avid DNxHR/HD simultaneously.



The DRAGON-X Camera BRAIN weighs in at just 3.35 pounds (1.52 kg) and delivers the ultimate blend of flexibility and performance for any situation.
